What are Tokens(top)
Empire Tokens are a special currency that can be earned on Empire Minecraft when a player completes a challenge or a task.
Unlike Rupees, the currency used in the player-ran economy, Tokens must be earned by a player, and cannot be traded nor gifted.
Receiving Tokens from Custom Monsters(top)
Players may earn Tokens by defeating Custom Mobs such as Enraged Zombies, Momentus, or Marlix.
The number of tokens earned will scale based on the player's personal difficulty level, but it may be affected by other factors, such as the number of recent player deaths nearby (constantly dying will reduce tokens earned) or how much health the mob has lost due to other things like falling.
The amount of received tokens is subject to how much damage players have dealt to a custom mob. Damage associated with the environment will compromise the ability to earn tokens.
Players that take down custom monsters in a group will receive a 10% bonus to the amount of tokens earned.
Tokens are distributed based on the amount of damage done to the monster. If you damage a monster down to 50% of its health, sign off, and another player defeats it, you will still receive half of the Tokens.
Tokens can also be earned through group activities, such as mining. When players are in a group and are completing activities, token rewards can be given out.
Receiving tokens through voting(top)
Tokens can be received by voting for Empire Minecraft. 5 tokens are received for every vote. If you vote on Topg or Minecraftservers.org, you will receive 10 tokens. There are also additional tokens given for reaching certain bonus levels.
What are they used for(top)
Tokens can be used to pay for a biome change on your Residence in the Town. For 5,000 Tokens, you can change the biome on any of your Residences on one of the SMP servers. A biome change on Utopia will cost you 10,000 Rupees. Use the /res changebiome command in order to change your Residence's biome.
Example: /res changebiome jungle changes your Residence's biome to the jungle biome.
There are many more features planned for the future, such as Dragon Eggs, unique armor, and more. Tokens will also be the primary currency used to claim land for your Empire in the Frontier!
Right now, tokens cannot be used to obtain items. During the holiday season of 2014 and 2015, a temporary promotion of EMC's Blizz Ard mob existed, and a number of tokens could be manually traded in for the Avalauncher item. More information can be found here.
